The pen is in overall very nice condition with an interesting chased pattern, there are no cracks or personalization. The barrel and cap have some light wear, with the barrel ends demonstrating some brassing, as shown.  The cap has a firm ring top.  The lever has some wear and light brassing.  The lever is on the short side and is only sligntly larger then the opening which makes grasping it a bit of a challenge.  The pen has been cleaned, a new ink sac has also been installed and the pen has been ink tested.  This classic 1920's era pen is ready for you to add some ink and start writing.
